The US Energy Department has issued final authorisation for Cheniere Energy’s Corpus Christi Liquefaction Project to export domestically produced LNG to countries that do not have a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the US.
The Corpus Christi Liquefaction Project, located in Corpus Christi, Texas, has been authorised to export LNG up to the equivalent of 2.1 billion ft3/d of natural gas for a period of 20 years.
In a statement released on its website, the Energy Department said that it had “conducted an extensive, careful review of the Corpus Christi application. Among other factors, the Department considered the economic, energy security, and environmental impacts and determined that exports at a rate of up to 2.1 billion ft3/d for a period of 20 years was not inconsistent with the public interest.”
